You will need these two archives to use the converter:

Unified Converter System: convert.zip
wBB 1.1.1 converter file: convert_wbb111.zip

To install it, unzip convert.zip then upload everything to your phpBB2 directory. Upload the converter file in the convert/ directory then go to http://www.yoursite.com/phpBB2/convert/

After you have converted your forum, launch the search re-indexing then destroy your forum when you are sure you won't need it anymore. ;) (it will drop all wBB tables)

for wbb 1.2 open "convert_wbb111.php", search for

Code: Select all

"'test_file'		=>	'class_db_zugriff.php'"
and change it to

Code: Select all

'test_file'		=>	'admin/class_db_zugriff.php'
Upload the file and try ;)
Perhaps check your permissions

Sorry Naddel but that converter is for 1.1.1, we need one for 1.2! Or if anyone knows how to switch wBB users into phpBB it would be VERY helpful my members don't want to signup again (I think it's been around 16 times already).

Don't work for me.

1) At line 703 of index.php i've changed

$sql .= "\nLIMIT $skip_rows,-1"

with

$sql .= "\nLIMIT $skip_rows,18446744073709551615";

2) Btw it hang at snd step, with the query string
http://localhost/phpBB2/convert/index.p ... prefix=bb1_

it shows a blank page and that's all.

Dunno wich could be the problem
